Groom accused of bag snatching to fund Valentine wedding


As Valentine's Day approaches, a 30-year-old man is accused of snatching a 62-year-old woman's bag in Nakhon Pathom's Kamphaeng Saen district on Wednesday to fund his "wedding" on the traditional day of romance.

Thewan Kaewkrajang was arrested at 10am near the Phra Thaen-Kamphaeng Saen intersection a few minutes after he allegedly snatched the victim's bag, containing Bt4,000 in cash and a cell phone from a nearby market, said Pol Captain Supachoke Boriboon of Kamphaeng Saen police. 
Thewan apparently said he was in urgent need of cash for a Bt60,000 dowry and Bt20,000 in gold to marry his girlfriend in the district, as her family had already set up the wedding for Valentine's Day.
